Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts increases through 85% of students involved in the residencies having a positive experience and feel they learned more about the art. Evaluation will occur through a participant questionnaire, an artist questionnaire, a follow-up meeting with project planners, notes related to personal observation; and audience, artist, and your attendance numbers.

Measurable Outcome(s)

100% of students surveyed felt they learned more about painting and would like to do a painting residency again! Students in the High School were also interviewed saying they enjoyed the residency and learned to manipulate paint. Students were also surveyed at the elementary level for the Ross Sutter residency with 100% of students enjoying the residency, learning more about folk music, and of course having fun.
